He'd have to face JFK and FDR, who would both be Republicans today.
Today's modern liberals are socialist statists. They have more in common with hitler, mao and stalin than great Republicans like Washington, Reagan or Lincoln.
Interesting twist on history. I'm sure Washington would be surprised to hear he was a Republican. Especially considering how liberal he was.

I remember a couple of years ago they were calling Obama an anti-colonialist. That is something Washington would have been proud to call himself.

Why would you want to be a Democrat today? They have to lie about everything to make you think they are doing something. They protect the wet backs that are here illegally. They ignore our laws. They show weakness in a world where you must be strong to survive. They produced the major ghettos in America, they offer the law abiding, hard working taxpayers nothing. This is not JFKs Democrat party.

<quoted text>There is a world of difference between early and late Sinatra, both in voice quality and in attitude. When i first met my little border petal, she had heard only later Sinatra, and couldn't stand him. When I introduced her to the Sinatra of the 1940's, she became one of his most ardent fans. She even rushed out and bought a pair of bobby socks.
I'll listen to both, and see if I agree. his, Softly as I leave you, and Something Stupid, with his funnyfaced daughter were good, excellent for karaoke with a chick after having too much to drink. But you gotta give him credit, he withstood the test of time, not many do....the beatles, stones, Eagles, aerosmith (yuck) Sinatra, and very few more that stayed together and made hits in mucho decades.

BFD. Ancient history. How do you think Lincoln would do in a Republican primary now?
If it is ancient history why do you hold on to it? Let it go but you won't when it fits your need?

It makes you wonder why you bozo Republicans had to change your ways. You guys had a good thing going on till you allowed all the bigots, racist & homophobes into your party.

Listen to Sinatra with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and later with the Axel Stordahl Orchestra.

It's kind of fascinating. The last song Sinatra ever sang in public was "Angel Eyes", a brooding kind of goodbye song. Miraculously, for one final time, Sinatra shed his Vegas arrogance, the raspiness of an aging, smoke-filled voice, and sang the song like the Sinatra of old. It is a thing of beauty.

It does not matter if Washington is living or dead. He did not belong to any party let alone the Republican Party that did not even exist at the time.

If you really are not sure about Washington's anti-colonial feelings he pretty much confirmed this through his participation in the American Revolution.

As an actor, Sinatra was ridiculed at the start. His big break came as Maggio in "From Here To Eternity", for which he won a best supporting actor Oscar.

I must confess I missed the Cannonball Run 2 masterpiece.

I have 1000's 60" LP's of Tommy Dorsey Orchestra along with many other big bands. My grandfather was into those sweet tunes.
